Bigg Boss 13 sensation Himanshi Khurana recently surprised everyone by announcing her separation from boyfriend Asim Riaz. The couple, together for four years, mutually decided to part ways on amicable terms. However, Himanshi’s disclosure regarding their breakup due to divergent religious beliefs stirred controversy, drawing substantial criticism toward the actress. Yet, Asim Riaz has finally broken his silence on their split, extending his support to his ex-girlfriend.
Taking to his renamed Twitter account, now known as X, Asim addressed their breakup, stating, “We indeed mutually decided to prioritize our individual religious beliefs over our love. As responsible adults in our thirties, we made this mature decision. We’ve chosen to separate amicably, embracing our distinct paths. I respect Himanshi and our divergent journeys, and I did advise her to share the genuine reason for our parting. Kindly respect our privacy.”
Following this revelation, Himanshi posted a chat screenshot with Asim, clarifying their aligned stance on their separation. The conversation showed Asim’s insistence for disclosing their different religious backgrounds as the genuine reason behind their breakup. Subsequently, Himanshi deactivated her X and Instagram accounts, possibly indicating a hiatus from social media.
In her earlier announcement on December 7, Himanshi conveyed, “Asim and I are no longer together. Though our time together was wonderful, our journey as a couple ends here. We’re moving forward in our lives, respecting our distinct religious beliefs by parting ways. There’s no animosity between us, and we urge respect for our privacy.”
Their love story began during their stint on Bigg Boss 13, where Asim developed feelings for Himanshi, who took her time to reciprocate. After her eviction, she realized her love for him, returned to the show, and accepted his proposal.
Amidst their heart-wrenching breakup, Asim and Himanshi have mutually chosen to prioritize their individual religious beliefs, respectfully parting ways while seeking understanding and privacy from their supporters.
